BTF 2018 Championships Announced (GB+England) – British Triathlon Qualifiers for Duathlon & Triathlon

New BTF Logo

British Triathlon Federation has just announced their Major Event CHAMPIONSHIPS for 2018. As usual The English Championships were also announced and the Welsh/Scottish events will follow with an announcement in a few weeks.

Also listed are ETU/ITU finals held on British soil

There ARE other distances that I have not listed here. These are the most popular and well-known events.

Some venues are not known at the time of writing, please let me know if I miss an announcement.

Some 2018 events are still open for qualification at the tail-end of 2017 covered here: link to the5krunner.com.

WARNING: You should double- and triple-check these details against the organiser’s website. Dates may change. Multiple year/events/disciplines make the information potentially confusing. Also note that there are multiple finals that can be qualified for in one event eg ITU sprint finals in 2018 AND 2019 (that looks wrong to me but it is what the BTF say). The information below is from multiple sources but mostly from the BTF site. It is correct at the time of publishing AFAIK.
